Just be careful and get a rear camera with night vision and roll down all the windows if you ever feel uncomfortable. Even when it's raining.

You can still see headlights and tail lights when it's dark. But.......the above pictures is 20% on top of 5%......ALL you can see are headlights and taillights. Anything else won't exist looking throughout the windows.

If I had to do it all over again.....the windows wouldn't be this dark.

so you have 2 layers of tint on all the windows then? 20 and 5 on the front 2, and 20 and 5 over the factory tint as well, or just 5 over factory on the rear? if so damn thats boss

im 20 and ive have tinted windows since i was 17. my last vehicle was a Ford Focus and i had 35 on the front and 5 on the back, and now 20% on my Jeep. it takes a little to get used to but well worth it! i like my privacy and wish i had just done 5% all around to begin with. now i get the pleasure of pealing it all off and paying for it again lol

Re: The 5% or less tinted windows thread!

Im going to have to change my sig........ As of last Wednesday I got a ticket and will be putting 30% on my fronts.

I have been using 5% for the past 5 years, and i recently moved and get my first tint ticket!!!

I played dumb but still got the ticket. I'm getting it fixed today. This blows...

Re: The 5% or less tinted windows thread!

Not sure what that laws are where u live, but in michigan we aren't allowed any tint on the front 2. My buddy got pulled over and got a ticket and he has 35% on his front doors of his mustang. He was also doing 95 mph in a 70 and cutting across 3 lanes at once too. I figure if he is gonna get ticketed for 35, the price doesn't go up with 5% as far as I know so I'm going for it lol

Re: The 5% or less tinted windows thread!

Love the 5% all around and 50% windshield..... Could not be happier!

Even with that, on a SUNNY day, little light can get through. I do sometimes regret not going 40% on the windshield, but yes, at night it is DARK. haha

Re: The 5% or less tinted windows thread!

I too sometimes think about going with 40% on the windshield but have realized that 50% is enough.

Re: The 5% or less tinted windows thread!

40% on the windshield is dark looking in but not looking out everyone envy's my windshield tint... and as for the black pillar idea... ive tossed it around a few times and am still not sold... could anyone do a chop so i could see what it would look like?

all i can say is wow!!! sick srt!! the middle picture the front doors dont look as dark as 5% usually does, but im guessing that because the sun was in front on the jeep. i know when the sun is in front of my jeep, the 20% is hardly noticeable, and that is much darker!
with 5% on the front doors, can you be sitting a stop light with the windows up and the vehicle next to you not be able to see you at all, or can they see like an outline of you but not your face or anyting just a head and body?
